However, I draw the line at boycotting or insulting people who patronized a foreign food chain. Philippines biggest fast food chain, Jollibee, opened its first shop in Singapore last week, and the internet are filled with comments insulting the people, mostly Filipinos, who lined up at the shop on opening day.
That is just stupid. Jollibee opened a shop here in
Singapore because there are a lot of Filipinos
here in Singapore. Yes, the shop is here to cater to them. What’s wrong with that? Guess what; that’s called business!
If Singaporeans want to complain about the numbers of foreigners in
that’s one thing. However when you complain about people from a specific
nationality just because they patronized a shop, that’s a step too far. That’s just called racism.
